This is what US Embassy in Lebanon clarified.

The website of US embassy in Lebanon tweeted a clarification that stated: “We were surprised by a press report indicating that Banque du Liban, was the subject of a discussion between Ambassador Shea and President Berri yesterday. In fact, the discussion with the Speaker of the House of Representatives focused on questions about the House of Representatives and on an upcoming visit by an official in the US State Department. So clarification is required.”
